Call for Films

American Overture


The Oklahoma Dance Film Festival

is now accepting submissions for its 2017 festival.  

We curate 3 unique genres of film:

  1. 1) Dynamic short films (under 15 min.) that use movement as a medium

for story-telling or visual spectacle; 

2) Longer features that expose the process, history, and theory of dance; 

3) Digital-media and animation works that focus on bodies and motion.


Possible thematic programming: global voices, landscapes, characters and stories,

site-specific choreography, magic and make-believe...

Please submit your work as a high-quality .MOV file, no more than 5 GB.  Please use a file transfer service such as WeTransfer or Dropbox. Downloadable Vimeo files are also accepted. Do not send a YouTube link.
